BBF, which is a fifty years old company with its headquarter implanted at St Péreuse in Morvan, has developed its sawmill activity with the buying of a sawmill at Fours in 1995 before setting up another one at La Machine in 1999 and moving all the activity at this one. The activities and productions have evolved so as to meet clients’ needs, from the purchase of round timber to the sale of processed material, from pallets wood to dunnage wood, from reconstituted beech boules to selected oak boules and to wood sleepers, from 100% broadleaf to a broadleaf / conifer mix with a majority of Oak and Douglas, from the production of sawn items to the development of subsidiaries of industrial wood as well as of woodfuel, and finally from pallet assembly to the planing of strips used for parquet, terraces, floorboards, plinths, cladding of house and clapboards. Equipped with recent and high performance sawing machines, the sawmill of BBF has the ability to process 30 000 m3 round timber a year and employs 30 people. Our sawing activity spreads over 10 000 m², in buildings set on 3 sites totaling 10 hectares of land in La Machine.
